View Full Version : Heating rib glaze?

Do you guys warm/heat your rib glaze before applying it? Is there any benefit to this other than the glaze will set faster? Thanks!

On the rare occasions I want to glaze or serve sauce I use those cheapie squeeze bottles and heat them in hot water.

I do it because it goes on much smoother. no brush marks, "gets into the cracks", one less thing cooling the ribs.

or it could just be habit:becky:

Warming the rib glaze makes it go on without brush marks, unless you are using a very thin glaze. Also makes it easier to get even, as a warm glaze is somewhat self-leveling.

Yes. It helps to keep the ribs warm when applying afterwards, plus it flows smoother/easier.

I do it as well when I sauce ribs mainly, it does set better on the ribs.

i heat the sauces for all categories. i think it is one of those critical small details that will have a direct impact on your scores. at least it did for me anyway.

Thanks guys, I'll be heating my glaze tomorrow. Good luck to all those competing this weekend.
